iOS Swift 2.0 Basics Swift Types String Manipulation

not sure why i am getting this wrong

yea, I'm a beginner, and this may seem pretty elementary but in this Concatenated final greeting, i'm not sure why my code i wrong.

strings.swift
let name = "Donnie"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
let finalGreeting = "\(greeting), \(How are you?)"

donnie, you are using String interpolation rather than concatenation. Try this instead:

let name = "Donnie"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)"
let finalGreeting = greeting + " How are you?"

The + sign "adds" the two Strings together.

thank you!

i did try this, and still was wrong.

donnie, try this one. It seems I left out a period it wanted after the name:

let name = "Donnie"
let greeting = "Hi there, \(name)."
let finalGreeting = greeting + " How are you?"

jcorum He posted the question elsewhere and his code has changed to have finalgreeting as the constant instead of finalGreeting so the challenge is rejecting it. :(
